Re: Tantrums in the grocery store

Don't forget the positive reinforcement when he does sit well in the seat, too. My DD is 26 months and I try to have her help me "find the bananas" "check the eggs" "put things in the cart (from the seat) and she holds the bags while and counts how many apples I put in, etc. I just continually talk to her about what we are doing to distract her. I don't like to use food to make her sit still, but if she is really squirmy, I do. Right now we point out all the Christmas decorations in the store too.
